Installed, no problem. Even dl'd a skin and that one installed, no problem. We'll see.
It seems to be stable now. It had quite a few bugs (even in Win 7)I also read somewhere that the Media Player was not functional on recent OS (at least not for Windows Media Player)
oooh got a problem though...... i tested a new skin I was making, I can import the bmp background image no problem......BUT when I go to graphics and add one, and go to drop down image file......its not showing, despite me having one there, and renaming it several times to different things... like, graphics, graphic_BG Graphic_BG etc.
even tried it with copy desktop background for pseudo transparency turned on and off.........not sure ........hmm
if you have any luck Uvah....let me know.
Using version 3.45
Instead of importing it as a bmp, import it as a png image. I used to do that and it worked. All the images I made I saved as png's. The only bmp was the preview itself. Amazing how all this stuff comes back into memory. I'm still working on my latest for Xion but after that......
Do this...find one of my old skins and install it. Change the .smx file extension to .zip and extract the images into a folder. Then you have all the images, basically all png's.
Just save your background image as bitmap (bmp) I just did a test skin run and it worked fine.
It's quirky on 10.
I have always run it on one of my boxes and the original issue I had was it wouldn't actually 'move' as in clock hands etc... and my magic pink wasn't magic at all...it was pink...
Then one day it fixed itself.
I blame Microsoft...
Jafo, you could had tried magic yellow or maybe magic blue.
And so you should! Everything is Microsoft's fault!
Magic pink is a colour tone known by "ancients" of skinning....used in many skinnables to define transparent sections of a skin. When it's actually visible it means something somewhere went 'wrong'....
This is true. The RGB is 255...0...255. If one value is changed, even by one number, example...255...1...255, the magic pink loses it's magic. (its an analogy, been awhile since I played with SMX). I blame MS.
Or if you're using crayons and went outside the lines, that'll do it too.
I will try this.............BUT......dont you have issues it asks for the bmp background? It wont let me add a png...thats why Ive always gone to graphics to add my png background there, checked the psuedo box, and had the graphic checked as always behind and walahh...png background image.........
i tried something else.........i took my electrosexual sysmetrix and changed the graphics out to my new graphics
and that worked......... my new sysmetrix skin didnt make an ini file either..........
somthing to think about...........with cake...
I just tried opening sysmetrix with administration.....that hasnt helped..........hmm
nope....im stuck because I need the png background to show and it wont.......bmp wont cut it due to the graphic
being very detailed..........
To use the pseudo transparency, you need to create 2 images (1 bmp image and 1 png image) Load the bmp first and check the pseudo transparency box. Then go to Graphics under Theme Settings. Add a new layer and load your png file.Make sure both files are in your skin folder.
yeah I did that........but for some reason the png graphics wont show up from the folder section......
has that worked for you in windows 10 if you make a new skin??.......just seeing where everyone is on this...or is it just me ..........
the graphics had to be INSIDE the new sysmetrix folder........not a folder I made for it on the desktop DUH!!!
LOL getting better now....working good
Yeah, it tends to get a bit confusing. Glad you got it working now.
Ok......here's what I got so far. Made two images, one png, one bmp. Import the bmp first without magic. Click on use pseudo transparency and the image vanishes. Go to graphics, click add...it goes to the folder but doesn't see the png. Made sure 'before everything else' was ticked. Open the drop down for the image and it doesn't show up. However, I was able to set up a simple clock sans the background.
I chose a light background to highlight it.
Nice work Ross...........this one is mine
Dl'd one on my old skins and had to import it using SMX config. Clicked on the smx icon and it loads that way too but it does not show up in the folder.
